Mar 29, 2023

News provided by Share this article Financings provide $50 million of cash to the balance sheet for operations Provides full year 2023 sales guidance of $34 to $40 million HAMILTON, Mont., March 29, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Local Bounti Corporation (NYSE: LOCL , LOCL WS) ("Local Bounti" or the "Company"), a breakthrough U.S. indoor agriculture company combining the best aspects of vertical and greenhouse growing technologies, today announced its financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2022 and provided sales guidance for full year 2023. Craig Hurlbert, Co-CEO of Local Bounti, stated, "2022 marked our first full year as a public company, complete with several important milestones. We made significant advancements in the refinement and productivity of our Stack & Flow TechnologyTM, which continues to underpin our business model with a capital efficient tool to enhance crop turns and maximize return on investment across a variety of CEA approaches. Beyond our greenfield expansions, this technology affords us flexibility to establish greater scale quickly through strategic acquisitions — which we demonstrated with our Pete's transaction where we are integrating our technology to further improve upon the productivity of those assets. With our distribution reach, which surpasses 10,000 doors, and our growing capacity that is improving by the day, we have also attracted new partnerships and expanded others — most notably with the offtake agreement with Sam's Club for our leafy greens production. Together, our integrated team is driving synergies across our Company while also driving the business forward with new product development." Mr. Hurlbert added, "Looking ahead to 2023, we are poised to complete our Georgia and Texas facilities and our Washington facility in 2024. Further, we continue to push forward our other projects with the resources provided by today's announcement of the new financings. With this additional capital, we believe that we have the funding required to drive the business to positive adjusted EBITDA." Full Year 2022 Financial Summary Sales of $19.5 million in 2022, as compared to $0.6 million in the prior year period. Gross profit was $2.2 million in 2022. Adjusted gross margin percentage1 was approximately 38%, excluding depreciation, stock-based compensation, business combination related costs, and other non-recurring items. Net loss was $111.1 million in 2022 as compared to net loss of $56.1 million for the prior year period. Adjusted EBITDA1 loss was $29.8 million, which excludes $39.2 million in stock-based compensation, $16.7 million in interest expense, $10.4 million of depreciation and amortization, fair value inventory adjustment of $1.0 million, business combination and integration costs of $10.1 million, restructuring costs of $1.1 million, $2.6 million of loss on disposal of fixed assets, utilities price spike and inclement weather related costs of $0.4 million, and other discrete items. Adjusted EBITDA loss in the prior year period was $17.8 million. 1See reconciliation of the non-GAAP measures at the end of this press release. Commercial Facility Expansion Update Byron, Georgia Facility Phase 1-A, 1-B and 1-C Progress The Company completed its first "Stack" vertical zone in the fourth quarter, as part of its of Stack & Flow Technology™ implementation, and is producing product in Phase 1-A. Construction of Phase 1-B is progressing and the Company now expects completion of this phase early in the second quarter of 2023. Following Phase 1-B completion, the site's greenhouse footprint will be established and ready to integrate the complementary Stack zones that comprise Phase 1-C. Construction Commences on "Stack" integration at Georgia Facility Georgia facility Phase 1-C construction has commenced, which reflects the integration of its vertical "Stack" component of the facility architecture. The Company now expects this work to be completed and operational early in the fourth quarter of 2023, following some weather induced construction delays. The Company's Stack & Flow TechnologyTM is expected to add approximately 40% of incremental revenue generating capacity to the finished Georgia facility, which will be comprised of six acres of greenhouses and multiple climate, water, and spectral controlled Stack zones. Construction Underway at Mount Pleasant, Texas Facility In early January 2023, the Company started construction of the six-acre facility, which will leverage Local Bounti's proprietary Stack & Flow Technology™ to grow and sell its indoor grown line of packaged leafy greens. Varieties will include spring mix, butter lettuce, romaine crisp, green leaf, and additional blends. The addition of the new facility in northeast Texas is expected to fortify Local Bounti's distribution in markets across Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kansas, and Missouri. Further, the facility is designed to provide additional capacity to meet existing demand from Local Bounti's direct relationships with blue-chip retailers and distributors throughout the region. The facility is expected to commence operations in the fourth quarter of 2023. Pasco, Washington Facility Progress The Pasco, Washington facility continues to progress with anticipated completion in first quarter 2024, which reflects the Company's decision to stagger construction to accommodate the commissioning of its Texas facility in the fourth quarter of 2023. The Washington facility will be comprised of multiple Stack zones and three acres of greenhouse. SKU Development In January 2023, Local Bounti successfully launched its chef-inspired Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit, a restaurant-quality meal solution that is prepared at home in about 5 minutes, at 194 Sprouts Farmers Markets locations in California and Arizona. Local Bounti's new Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit featuring fully cooked, white meat chicken, mushrooms, carrots and green onions in a tangy stir fry sauce, represents the Company's entry into the 'Heat and Eat' category. Capital Structure The Company ended the quarter with cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $24.9 million and approximately $29.1 million of undrawn capacity on its credit facility with Cargill Financial Services International, Inc.  Local Bounti had approximately 103.7 million shares outstanding as of December 31, 2022, and had an additional 11.5 million warrants outstanding and approximately 9.5 million restricted stock units outstanding. As of December 31, 2022, including these warrants and restricted stock units, the Company had a fully diluted share count of approximately 124.7 million shares outstanding. Secures Additional Financing to Support Growth Today, the Company secured up to $145 million of additional financing from two sources to support its current growth plans. The first component of this financing is an agreement to expand Local Bounti's existing credit facility with Cargill by up to $110 million per the terms and conditions of the agreement to a total of $280 million. This expansion provides capital to fund construction at its facilities in Georgia, Texas and Washington. The second component of the financing is an agreement with an internally managed net-lease real estate investment trust for the sale-leaseback of Local Bounti's two facilities located in California for approximately $35 million. Additional details regarding the terms of these agreements can be found in the concurrent press release issued this morning and in the Company's Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022 to be filed later this week. Following this additional amendment and the closing of the sale-leaseback transaction, which is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected in the second quarter of 2023, the Company expects to add $50 million to its balance sheet for use in its operations. Additionally, the Company has also received term sheets from a licensed United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) lender that the Company intends to utilize in due course for its Washington and Texas facilities, which is expected to reduce the Company's use of construction financing by approximately $80 million and lower its cost of capital. Financial Outlook Management is providing its full year 2023 sales guidance of $34 to $40 million, which approximates its expected production from its Montana, California and Georgia (Phase 1-A and 1-B) facilities, but excludes the expected future positive impact from additional capacity following its Stack implementation at the Georgia facility.

The conference call is scheduled to begin at 8:00 a.m. ET on Wednesday March 29, 2023.
